Punta Cana Vacations
Your Punta Cana vacation
The second largest nation in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic is lined with idyllic stretches of sand and surf just waiting to be discovered. You'll find the island decked in resort luxury which -- together with neighboring Bávaro -- spans some 100 miles on the furthest east coast.
Travelers from around the world pamper themselves with Punta Cana vacations at all-inclusive resorts, complemented by dining in fine restaurants, golfing at championship courses and an array of water-based fun.
Insider tips for Punta Cana travel
For dancing outside the limits of your resort, Imagine Nightclub offers more than 115,000 square feet of space for dancing and having fun.
Need a stylish bathing suit, jewelry or special gift? AltaMar, an upscale Dominican retail chain, has multiple locations, including Galleries de Punta Cana and the Riu Palace.
For a scenic, off-the-beaten-track day trip, head to Caño Hondo, which has uncrowded beaches, picturesque streams and a large forest preserve.
Spend an afternoon in Higuey, the charming capital of Altagracia Province. The strikingly modern Basilica of Our Lady of Altagracia is the most-photographed site here.
